hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush but those democrats who went for the radical regulation. he was very clear about that. and he's populous. what romney has recognized there is real pain out there and people want something done. if obama is more of the same, he's in trouble. >> eliot: look, mitt romney is appeal to go folks right now to folks whose logic is give me something different. the burden is on the president is to say yes but the something different that he's offering is the same george w. bush that was offered in the first place. he does not close the circle. i want to make this point. the adcdos who came out and said you have to raise taxes. does that puncture the balloon of the entirety of the logic of mitt romney. >> it may puncture it if you want to analyze this in logical terms. >> eliot: you're not saying logic is not in politics. >> i don't think it is right now. you may have fired an aide who wrote a speech like that. i think romney is quite wise not to. the banality of what he says is central. he does not want to spell out what he's going to say
press secretary under president george w. bush. hello to both of you. >> your setup there looks fantastic. democracy plaza looks great. >> i wish you were here to see it. they have been working so hard on this. i could go on an on. we have details to get to. people ice skating. it's just cool. but let's talk about a couple of different ideas here, karen, with you. two respected political analysts have widely divergent predictions for the election. nate silver gives the president an 84% chance of winning and says he'll get 305 electoral votes. flip side mitt romney will be winning with 315 electoral votes. does anyone know what's going to happen? >> no, of course not. this is why i love politics. and this is why i love the pollsters. they try to apply science and data that predict. we're talk about human beings. and human behavior is unpredictable. we can have a sense of what we think is going to happen. the numbers i've been looking at are some of the early vote numbers. for example if you look at some of of these battle ground states and the number of people who have already vo
when george bush did it, and the report went through statistics of many decades of data that would verify what anybody would know if they looked at it. >> jennifer: somebody called it the banana republic, that they were pressured to sit on the report. do you think there is some political shenanigans happening? the nonpartisan folks won't release the report? >> well, the way i heard it was that some of the republican congressional leadership rejected to the regression methodology. so i'm not sure about that. i think it probably was not what they considered the oppertune moment, i feel that's why they pull it down. >> jennifer: i'm shocked. i'm sure you are, too. gentlemen, thank you some for coming inside "the war room." this is the most important last data point before the election. up next, if president obama wins the electoral vote but loses the national vote, are we going to be celebrating tuesday the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you c
to the george bush era, and i am not -- i was extremely pessimistic when george bush got re-elected. as a matter of fact, one of the headlines in the british press said how can america be so stupid? now, if mitt romney and paul ryan win the election, i think the headlines will be the same. host: anderson, let's get back to the economy. talk to me about signs that you see -- signs that make you optimistic in brooklyn. talk to me about the housing -- caller: well, as a matter of fact, i'm glad you mentioned brooklyn, because yesterday i was down at flatbush, atlantic avenue, and that, what do you call it, the barclays center, where the home of the brooklyn nets will be, there is a lot of economic activity. and this economic activity started with metrotech, which was on flatbush avenue, and it went on to and is spread ago cross downtown brooklyn. it's becoming to look like upper manhattan, midtown. and, you know, you see people's enthusiasm bringing these businesses in the area, and i work in manhattan, and you see, you know, you've seen a lot of hiring by big companies. you know, manhattan is a br
of president george w. bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days or weeks of the election, in 2000 there were reports of a dui arrest that he had in connecticut a couple decades before. in both cases, they didn't move many boats. the october surprise can completely alter a presidential contest, but italy has not done that that much. host: you noted the examples of george w. bush. we know as it is that an october surprise release ways voters. guest: last-minute things can sway voters. i cited examples in that article. not necessarily in the presidential race but let us look the other races right now. in india, the senate candidate murdoch looked like he was slightly above joe donnelly going into the final debate between the men last monday. in that debate he made some comments about rates that were taken -- vitter able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated the states. the political space for the last couple days. and it has sunk mourdocks place. what we saw there was a real moment in which a last second declaration by a candid
. george bush, bill clinton tao too. george w. bush put it in the bowels of the homeland security. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was -- >> bill: hey, turn your radio or tv down in the background. >> caller: sorry. >> bill: little distracting. that's it. all right. >> caller: there are problems, situations that are too vast for the states. one being -- which was one i think one of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-t
rondando el fantasma del 2000 cuando george bush gaÓo la no Árida y la elecciÓn por 537 votos, mientras al gore gaÓo el voto popular. en el 2012, la florida es clave y no hay claras seÑales de quien va la delantera. segÚn el promedio de encuestas, como carros en una montaÑa rusa, las campaÑas tienen altibajos y al comienzo de septiembre, los candidatos casi chocan, por su escasa distancia de una dÉcima de punto. 46. 4% obama y 46,3% romney. ahora romney aventaja a obama 47. 9%. con 47% para el presidente, menos de un punto. >>> los candidatos estÁn empatados en la predicciÓn de voto de las encuestas. las diferencias no son estadÍsticamente significativas. cada voto cuenta. el titular prado cionalmente suele llevar la ventaja. >>> casi siempre el presidente va a la reelecciÓn fÁcilmente no con estos margenes. y las elecciones mÁs apretadas como el 2004. estamos en esta situaciÓn con el presidente bush que estÁ. >>> si la contienda es cerrada como a esta hora, es posible que uno de los candidatos gane en un estado, por un margen estrecho, y que inmediatamente por ley, se pida u
an economy that is still on the mend. >> i am certainly not going to defend george w. bush's debt. but now it is $16 trillion in the reach that point under obama. reductions in spending, there are reductions on the rate of growth. certainly for all the picking we do on greece and italy and spain, they have actually spent a little less year-over-year than they have before. the status came from, california, has managed to do a little bit, too. those are all steps in the right direction. we are only going to get there through cutting spending in the united states. 75% tax rates, history has shown, again and again, going back to the first deficit that hoover ran during the great depression when as history has forgotten, began the process of franklin roosevelt continuing deficit spending in order to take up the slack in aggregate demand. you never reduce your debt that way. the tax increases do not reduce the debt. the new money that comes in that is spent on new programs that get created, those programs perpetuate themselves and they require new spending and new borrowing. cutting spending is
phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the
court declared george bush the victor of the election, they've spent nearly $1 billion in to push forward a right-wing agenda. that includes funding think tanks, hoover, manhattan institute, to funding the activities on the ground of voter suppression and activities that take away the right of the people to exercise that sacred right of the franchise. they are massive. >> scot, i want to pause. i've been framing this as kind of buying your vote through advertising and that kind of thing. but what i found fascinating about the bradley foundation is they lay the intellectual justification for a variety of conservative policy positions. they fund research. they also fund the arts and things that are kind of community-based within wisconsin and milwaukee. but that idea of laying the intellectual framework suggests to me that this is not easily rooted out, for example, with new legislation. >> no. and the thing is, melissa, they have spent half a billion dollars. 60% of that is for organizations outside the state of wisconsin. they create science, junk science in universities and these
the latino community. this is a new phenomenon. george bush acknowledged it. they will have a deep interest in getting that done. the political case, oh, if barack obama is reelected, absolutely not. we are all in agreement. it's the exact same dynamics. i think there's a persuasive case. as a republican, i'm wondering if you think the same thing? >> george w. bush tried to propose bipartisan immigration reform. it was sunk. >> that is just not tree to say it was both parties. labor always opposed these, did the tough thing, bit down, went to their members, members that are suspicious of this and sold them that bill. this is mccain/kennedy. in 2008, when the candidates were running, john mccain took his name off the bill. it's not true it was killed by both parties. >> let's talk about what barack obama has done. he hasn't proposed a plan. one thing that comes out of the book is president obama doesn't enjoy the policy negotiations with congress. itis not his thing. >> why wuld you enjoy that? you would have to be a masochist to enjoy that. >> it's how you pass it. bill clinton did enjoy it
: yeah. the president said we are here for you. we will not forget. that's what george bush said in the plane flying over katrina. >> there's a lot of water down there. >> stephanie: there's no small amount of rumbling on the right. some republicans labeled him judas christie and rush limbaugh called the governor -- wait for it -- fat. [♪ circus music ♪] >> and accused him of being addicted to oxycontin. >> we have some other comments come up in the right-wing world about chris christie. >> stephanie: really? here is [ inaudible ] with -- >> the guy who's numbers are too gay -- >> stephanie: yeah. seven polls released in ohio obama plus two, obama plus three, obama plus five hashtag not that complicated. he write ts now watch in frustration, only a single romney-leading poll probably from rasmussen. apparently the pollsters are all effeminate pollsters too. please stop letting facts get in the way of the gop narrative. >> for a numbers guy he has an awesome sense of humor. >> stephanie: yeah.

the white paper twice, the unclassified report. i listened to speeches by dick cheney. by george bush. i saw the secretary of state come out before the security council of the united nations and say, this vial contains biological weapons from mobile biological labs in iraq. and i believed them and i believed the intelligence. and i voted to go to war in iraq. and the intelligence was wrong. >> her opponent in this race elizabeth. we have extended two invitations to her campaign for interviews but they say it didn't work out with her schedule. wanted to point that out. >> san francisco, all lit up in orange for giants fever. >> this is how the city shows its team pride during the world series. next our conversation with mayor ed lee. another high profile sports event he wants to bring to town. ,, event this year. >>> this week san francisco is all lit up and orange for the biggest baseball event of the year. >> and so we sat down with san francisco mayor ed lee and asked him, all right, the world series brought a lot of attention and money to the city. but how vile is this overall to san fran
to the emergency. that is what the mayor was referring to. we saw george bush saying he stayed away from the area around katrina because of that reason and bush suffered terribly for that decision but governor christie has welcomed president obama today so no one complaining about that in new jersey. >>neil: in new jersey. the rest of the state...i don't know, if obama was offering help, i would take it. thank you, byron. the president is in atlantic city with governor chris christie and he should be speaking shortly, fema officials are there and other top officials. rick, what do you see there? rick: incredible devastation in this community and many more up and down the new jersey coastline this is one of hundreds of homes that was damaged, some of them destroyed. you can see in this guy's front door and see the pool table covered with several feet of ground. >>neil: i will come back do you, but, now, with the president. >> we are surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline, we want to show the president that personally, and i had an opportunity to see and discuss it at length, and
or others is a very valuable story, especially very close to the election today. you remember george bush when he stood with a megaphone at 9/11, create ad tremendous amount of support in that story. that imagery is very, very powerful. it makes him authentic and is effective. david: talk about obama's picking on mitt romney particularly with the bain capital stuff. this buy, bain capital is bad organization and guy who started it is bad too. how did that story turn out? >> you know i think it is authentic from obama saying it from that standpoint. i don't think it is particularly effective. it does not move many people across the meter. one of the things the story has to shine through. if the storyteller isn't authentic whatever he or she is saying isn't memorable, isn't actionable. i think that story has worn thin. david: finally the idea obama is sort of real historic game-changer, he can walk on water. he got the nobel peace prize before he did anything for example, has that story worn thin? >> well it did until the bin laden situation happened. because that was really, you know, magi
that this is the kind of stuff i believe the president has had to endure. george bush never had somebody saying that the only reason why x, y or person supports you because you're both white. that's the extreme ridiculousness of these comments. >> let's talk about the hurricane sandy situation. obviously this is going to come crashing through the east coast, including potentially new yoark. what is your view now about where we are with the information? >> this is the time people should be putting plans together. they should be securing things in their lawn, they should be preparing to live without power if power outages happen. this is a very, very serious storm. we have seen the last two years what a hurricane and ice storm last october can do to our communities and everybody should take it seriously. >> it's also an interesting political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if h
's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tries to wriggle off the hook on this, i asked him the question, he gave a blunt answer. i asked him to clarify it, he gave a sort of blunter second answer. leaving no real wriggle room at all. the guy was saying, without any doubt, that the reason that colin powell, a four-star retired general, one of the great statesmen of modern america, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his
of george bush. to the wealthy. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barackwe will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery, and president obama has beenthis is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory health care for everyone -- his crowning achievement. what president's day will we get from former governor romney? -- what presidency will we get? host: we will stop there. statements. now we will turn it over to viewers, and if you can keep your answers a little shorter
, newsweek magazine. >> it has been recorded george w. bush tapped you or once you -- wanted you to be the fema director when you were in florida after mike brown. is that true, and to you write your own -- do you write your own tweets? >> yes, that is why there is this piping's. -- that is why there are misspellings in there. as far as the rest of this that goes, i work for the present right now, and that is my focus. -- i work for the president right now, and that is my focus. what happened previously, we can talk about that later offline. >> thank you. >> next question. wall street journal, your line is open. >> i wanted to ask whether there is a consolidated effort on how many people are being told to evacuate or have evaporated, and -- evaluated -- that have evaluated, and -- evacuated, and a number of states that would involve. the second question on the coastal storm surges. if you could share more perspective on how long this could last, and a bit of time we have those kinds of a large swath of coast line? >> i do not have that in front of me. each state has been doing t
in the business of what he does. now, tell us about george w. bush. i mean, you had to up -- tell me about what he is like and did you ever have any squabbles with the bush administration over coverage of things? >> we have certainly squabbles with the bush administration. now with george w. bush. i first met him down here in austin when he was governor and running for president. one of the traditions in a place like abc news is when you get into a presidential election year you invite all the candidates to come in and meet in an informal editorial meeting in new york, and then al gore who was vice president of the united states, but george w. bush's people said thank you very much. you contend austin. we flew down here. peter and i and some others flew down to interview george w. bush. my personal feelings always were he was very pleasant. he was very enjoyable to spend time with. very quick. i always felt the media underestimated his intelligence, certainly underestimated his political savvy. i was always very impressed. that said, particularly as we get into september 11th and wars in afghanist
disappointment that he hasn't been able to change the tone. george w. bush ran he was going to change the tone. everyone is always going to change the tone. the question is mitt romney promising by partisanship of it like lucy promising charlie brown she won't pull football? [laughter] >> yes, i think it is. i think that he has to nod to that there is no evidence he would govern in of bipartisan way to read george w. bush that is not elected president in my opinion but did not get a majority of the votes -- [applause] he ran that we as a compassionate conservative and you would have expected him to govern as a moderate and realize he presided over a very deeply divided country and instead he was one of the most radical presidents we've ever had, so i expect the same thing from mitt romney who is actually talked who is espousing more radical right policies than george w. bush ever did. like nixon and ronald reagan in certain ways looks like a moderate in terms of education mitt romney is very willing to slash all of that. >> romney brings up his massachusetts experience where he was in an overw
how much better i am than george bush. i'm not even president yet. ha ha, ha, ha. >> stephanie: exactly. you know all of the republican governors will be immediately begging for money. i love chris christie. >> yeah. >> stephanie: what did he say? he's so come for thing in times of need. he's like don't be stupid. >> he gave the president kudos. he said the president -- you know if the president didn't cancel his campaign activities, it would have been a huge problem. >> stephanie: does this give the president an opportunity to act presidential? he is presidential! it doesn't give him an opportunity to act presidential like george bush. let's do a photo op ten days after the storm with my -- i'm flying over it and checking out the damage. >> it shows we're workin' hard. it is hard work. >> stephanie: and workin' hard in addition. dana in maryland, you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi dana. >> caller: good morning, everybody. good morning jacki. >> good morning. >> caller: you look beautiful. >> oh
. in retrospect we can see both of them, george bush, the entire government structure lied to us and even joked about it with bush saying where are toes nuclear weapons -- those weapons. that was a national lie and crisis. that was an enormous lie that cost this nation trillions of dollars and huge numbers of human life in iraq and ours. that is the first lie. we look at katrina right down here on the gulf coast. we see the government going in wasting money exaggerating police executing people on bridges in new orleans. absolute overstretch. i would turn also to questioning do we trust c-span. has anybody looked at the board of directors of c-span? take the time to look at them. these are all c.e.o.'s of enormous powerful wealthy corporationless. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.ess. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is nss. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no. government.l of host: why do you say it is a tool of government? >> everybody says god bless c-span. i think
elected, so he doesn't count. jimmy carter from georgia, ronald reagan from california. the first george bush via connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas and the second question texas. so too does the natives and so ways a watershed election. it ends the 40 year. the sun belt dominance. their issues critical in the politics that developed that came out of the sun belt. they didn't have a conservative cast of them. they tended to be oriented about issues of strong national defense, and opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also is in the south and southwest that we see the rise at an 1870s when they come to talk about the religious right. the rise of evangelicals involved in the political process in new and important ways. so thurmond was at the forefront about this issues in his own politics. national defense, who is a staunch anti-communist and played a role in
suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high

, and he didn't. but he wanted to reassure people he wasn't going back to the george w. bush ollis policies. no more iraqs. and he wanted to assure women he was not a war monger. >> uh-huh. >> talking about a peaceful planet and gender quality in the middle east. it is astounding how he has shifted his policies. in fairness he has two sets of advisers. reasonable people working for him and some who would like to reenact the bush years. i think he hears from beth the realists and that additionallists won out certainly in this debate. >> i notes you characterized him as mr. romney. the president did that also during the debate. >> governor romney. >> are you trying to deny him his honor , which trails him after leaving office. >> i was just helping him out. >> what are you saying? >> i thought obama was lucky romney didn't feel in a position to hit president obama on his weaknesses. i thought president obama went into libya without congressional authority. that was illegal. president obama has done this drone war, where he has a kill list of people who he himself decides this guy might be a t
at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 million, the man about to get sworn in would see his re-election hinged on the pack onlg of loans the bush administration authorized. there's no way they would believe you. the reason for this strange state of affairs is the electoral college, a small category of swing states and a vast wasteland of states where they do not. we have become so accustoms to it, we don't think it's strange. of course it played out well in the swing state of ohio. it should. 160,000 jobs in ohio are no more important than 160,000 jobs in alabama or california. they are more important under our current political system. in fact, i like to imagine what politics would look like if there was no electoral college and the votes in my people of the bronx. the bronx is 1.4 million residents, more than 11 entire states. no presidential candidate there cares about what people think. it's safely blue. if they did, they
to george w. bush, but in 2004 went to john kerry. the president had a nine-point victory in 2008. we really are a tossup state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is their early voting? how do new hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there are absentee ballots. you have to sign a form that says you not be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, they are open from 7:00 until 7:00. some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnout in the country. other statistical interesting statistics -- statistical facts are that we are one of the least taxed state in the nation. the least taxed state. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue, pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. are gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue, as a matter of fact. host: talk about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. what are the rules for that? guest: we have
organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences, with their voting data, to try to more precise, so instead of just saying ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, you know, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive or what kind of cereal they eat, all kind factors from when you fill out surveys or that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressive in 2008 and they've been building on that ever since, so they've built a formidable, digital integrated data targeting effort that they have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground, and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else. so they know practically who all of their voters are. the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. >> molly ball is a staff writ

in a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this benghazi think. he said, as i said to my
